  • On our way back from town, as we approached the intersection of Rohnerville Rd and 36. We could see the flashing lights and make out the green Obstackle. “Oh great” Wunder how long this’ll take? Stopped at the market for gas and slowly cruised through the controlled one lane traffic. Pretty good sized pine, covered both lanes. It would have given you a heck of a head ache if you timing was bad.

  • I thought it was a German Nazi gestapo checkpoint

  • So strange because in the morning hours, a Redwood tree fell on a Caltrans truck just up the road from this. Cue Twilight Zone theme song
